IDK when I'm going to break down and start the install. I may get together with Irfan (BPOD) Or Chris (KISTOS) and do the install. I'll keep you guys posted.

Nate, I'm gunna tell you one thing on this, and give you one point of advice.

$40 box, is going to sound like shit...I can garuntee it. I once had my 15" sub running in a HORRIBLE box, it was small, looks identical to the one you posted.

Now, hear me out...custom built box...is the way to go, however there are also nice 12" sub boxes out there.

I would look into purchasing a better built box, Bassworx builds some excellent sounding boxes

Trust me, Ive dealt with it. The better the box, the better the sound.

Really??? Ok well you think a better made or just bigger box? I really don't want to do custom cause IDK how long I'll have the jeep or I may yank it out.

How bout this enclosure?

I would get a bigger box, and I would consider a better box.

Im currently at work, so they block photos...post up the link

Honestly, I would go with 2 10"s or 2 12"s....Ive done 1 12, and it isnt loud, even my 1 15" isnt as loud as my two 12's used to be..

LOL, if you want boom boom, im a gangsta gia, go with two 12's..

Bassworx boxes are nice, and sound great.

I'll look into that Kyle. I didn't want to go with anything too loud or crazy where I'd have to soundproof everything, but I'll consider a larger better made box for sure....

I have a $20 box I ordered online, sealed up all of the corners and seams and the thing is perfect for the $$$...I think I got it off of Sonixelectronics.com

AND if you don't like it, you can buy $40 in materials and make your own later...just my 0.02 My plan is to build a better box later, but this cheapo is doing just fine FYI


And I downgraded to a 10" from a 15"...and while there is def not as much thump in da trunk, IMHO it gives me plently of kick in tha back!

Re: Nasty Nate's Stereo build...
 
Cool Brad!!! BTW do you know if I have the iPod glove box connection do I need another PAC adapter or not? I thought I read somethere I don't need it if I have the ipod connection but I got it just in case. LOL

Re: Nasty Nate's Stereo build...
 
does the iPod adapter provide RCA outputs? I was under the impression it is to connect your iPod through your stereo (ie aux input) or does it also give you additional RCA outs???

I had asked this question b/c I wanted to get the iPod adapter but it was a tight fit with the PAC back there...and i wanted to make sure I could use both (PAC for the 2 RCA outs and iPod adapter to give me the aux in)...let me know what you find out!

IDK to be honest. I've haven't looked back there yet. LOL
